Mandatory activities: - Approved pre-project - Documentation of the working progress (status reports, MoM, time sheets etc) - Oral presentation (either as a final presentation or presentation of the project scope under work) - Poster (either as a final presentation or presentation of the project scope under work)

Compulsory assignments

  • Mandatory work requirements

Further on evaluation

Deadline for submission is 20th of May 12:00 each year. In case 20th of May follows on a weekend, the deadline will be on the following working day.

The bachelor thesis is normally carried out in groups consisting of 2 -3 students. The assignment is delivered as a written report, a poster and an oral presentation, possibly supplemented with a product / a prototype. A written report together with a possible product / prototype forms the assessment basis for the final grade.

Other matters concerning the thesis are given in separate handbook for the department.

If the bachelor's thesis is not passed, the student must submit a new thesis. Improvement / revision is not sufficient. The thesis can present the same topic area with the same empirical / data basis. A bachelor's thesis that has been assessed as passed cannot be submitted for a new assessment, even in a revised form.
